New iON Air Pro 2 Wi-Fi-enabled and Waterproof POV Camera Now Available Worldwide
NEW YORK (ShowStoppers, CE Week 2013, Table 112), June 26, 2013 – iON America, the consumer electronics company that brought Shoot/Share™ Wi-Fi connectivity to point-of-view (POV) cameras, is demonstrating its new, second-generation iON Air Pro high-definition (HD) video camera during CE Week 2013. The Air Pro 2 is now available online and at retail locations worldwide.
The iON Air Pro 2 offers powerful, new features, while retaining the compact size, light-weight, fully-waterproof design, Wi-Fi connectivity and ease-of-use benefits of the celebrated first-generation Air Pro.
Boasting a 14-megapixel sensor, the iON Air Pro 2 leapfrogs the competition in still resolution, delivering superior image quality to most POV cameras currently on the market. The iON Air Pro 2 captures up to 60 frames per second in HD video. Like the original Air Pro, the new camera vibrates when recording stops or starts so it is virtually impossible to miss the “big moment.”
A new, 180-degree lens provides the widest field of view, letting users capture a broader scene, and its standard battery provides up to 2.5 hours recording time, ensuring the camera remains fully functional to capture every moment. iON has added a microphone-in jack to the Air Pro 2, enabling the use of accessory microphones for pro-quality audio recording.
With the addition of the Wi-Fi PODZ™ accessory, iON Air Pro 2 users can easily upload their videos to social sites via iON’s iOS or Android apps for smartphones and tablets. The iON app enables use of an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch or late-model Android phone or tablet to stop and start recording, change all camera shooting modes, trip the shutter for still images, check battery life and more.
“iON sets itself apart from other POV camera companies by offering a wide range of options that meet the diverse needs of our customers, whether they are pro athletes or just ‘regular’ guys and gals who want to shoot and share their key moments in life,” said Giovanni Tomaselli, CEO, iON America. “The iON Air Pro 2 is designed to satisfy those who seek top-quality video and audio and is complemented by a full line of accessories all within a cohesive ecosystem that provides a superior user experience.”
